We already know that at Dolpa 29, which takes place on April 28th, we’ll have Dollfie Dream Asuna and Dollfie Dream Sister Alice, but what about the clothing? Well, since this is one of the bigger events there’s a whole lot. We’ve got stuff for every doll size (that Volks makes, of course), from Yo-SD to their large 1/3rd scale boys.
I’m sure most of you are interested in the DD stuff, and Volks seems to be going for a sports theme this time around. We’ve got cheerleader outfits and baseball getups that are really cute, but not my cup of tea. I like my girls to dress more naturally, so it’s the SD outfits that appeal to me this time around–especially that one in the header! You can check out all the pricing on Volks’ page for the event.

Dolpa 29 is under a month away at this point, which means it’s time to take a closer look at the ladies at the event! We’ve already seen Asuna, who at the moment is obviously the highlight of the event, but my eye has been on Alice Kunoi since her announcement. I’ve been waiting patiently for her official shots, and finally they are here!
Alice is just lovely, with a shy and almost aloof looking face. That type tends to appeal to me, and in fact she looks quite like some of my other dolls like Lucy and Sakuno. She also takes advantage of the new semi-white skin body, which is less pale than the previous one. The Dolpa is on the 28th, so get your wallets ready!

When Volks released Dollfie Dream Sisters Miki and Haruka, I thought that might be all we saw from the IDOLM@STER line. I mean there are so many girls, it’s not like they can make all of them! But as we’re finding out from Volks News 49, there will be at least two more–Yukiho Hagiwara and Chihaya Kisaragi! I’m a bit surprised, I thought for sure Azusa would be up next given her popularity and I was really hoping for Hibiki as well.
Thankfully neither of these girls sparks my interest (yet) because if they are anything like the first two they will be Japan-only. But who knows, maybe they’ve changed their minds and these girls will come to the US…. as pre-orders! Hey, I can dream. We also have scans of a super cute Alice in Wonderland themed look for Miki and Haruka.

Just when I was lamenting how we only know about one of the Dolpa 29 Dollifes (Asuna) we get a leak of the second gal! It’s going to be Alice Kunoji from Mahou Tsukai no Yoru, following up the wildly popular Aoko Aozaki. I actually had to pass on Aoko to get my Melty twins and have really been regretting it–she’s so pretty! But Alice, thankfully looks quite like her–or rather, if Aoko and Mio had a love child.
Since she doesn’t have a fancy sword or anything she’ll retail for a low ¥56,000. She’ll be released at Dopla 29 which takes place on April 28th. Get your wallets ready and your lucky charms in a row, because I feel like both of these ladies are going to be really popular!
[UPDATE] Added full-color scans, she is stunning! Alice will be an S bust on the new semi-white skinned body, and also has a super cute alternate casual outfit!

So we’ve known about the existence of Dollfie Dream Asuna for quite some time now, and recently we got to see her scans including pricing info and the event she’ll be at: Dolpa 29! Now we’re seeing her official shots from Volks, and while I think my Dollfie collection is a bit too stuffed to fit miss Asuna she certainly is looking pretty.
Many people have noted a similarity in her face to the DDH-06 along with Haruka Niimi, which I see as well. Though really, it’s hard at this point to come up with a totally new DD head that doesn’t look like any of the past releases. What I am wondering is what other girls will be at DP29–usually we see them all in scans, and since this is a big event I’d expect 3 girls, yet all we’ve seen so far is Asuna… perhaps we’ll find out down the line, or maybe she is the only girl and they will just make a massive amount of her?

Volks is not huge on revealing dolls until right before a big event, so it was a surprise when they announced a Dollfie Dream of Asuna way back in October. I assumed that she would be at one of the bigger Dolpas, and given that she didn’t show up at the winter one her appearance at Toyko Dolpa 29, which will take place on April 28th, was almost a given.
I will admit that I am not a big fan of her character design (long faces and big eyes are not my thing) but I do think they did a decent job rendering her and I love the wig! As usual the sculptor took some licenses with the character designs but she definitely looks like Asuna to me. Though I know some fans are (rightfully) wishing her face was longer, it’s almost impossible for a DD to look totally like the character–except for maybe Rise. Her price isn’t that bad at ¥69,300, even with the armor and sword. This is probably a pass for me, but I know fans are probably going to be thriled!

We already know that the Dollfie Dreams at Hometown Dolpa Osaka 7 will be Lucy and Nanami, and we’ve seen the outfits, but that is not all Volks has planned for the event! If you happen to have thousands and thousands of extra dollars you can bid on this one-off custom Dollfie Dream.
It’s Manaka Komaki from ToHeart2 on a Dollfie Dream Sister body with custom faceup and a custom outfit, but I think this pushes the “cute” boundary a little too much. It’s like sugary-sweet and I tend to like my girls looking a bit more casual. Maybe it’s because they used those creepy pupil-less eyes Volks has been favoring recently? Well if you like her the bidding will start at ¥75,000 but if you really want her bring your wallet because I can see this cutie skyrocketing in price… like every Volks one-off.

We already know that DDS Nanami and DD Lucy Magical Princess Version will be the doll releases at Hometown Dolpa Osaka 7, which takes place on March 10th, but for many people the outfits are the best part! As usual for a dolpa, we’ve got a ton of variety and clothing for pretty much all the doll bodies that Volks makes.
Of course the Dollfie Dream outfits are what interest me most, and there are some lovely ones! Particularly the brown ensemble they put on Saber Extra, which has a nice casual vibe. There’s also a very Dominatrix-y one as well! Of course it’s not all DDs, there are plenty of lovely and elegant SD outfits as well. In particular, there are a ton for boys, so check them all out below!

So we already know that one of the two dolls at Hometown Dolpa Osaka 7 will be Dollfie Dream Sister Nanami, little sis to the ever-popular Natsuki who actually just got a re-release of sorts! In fact we found out about her a long time ago, back when we still thought Mariko would be a little sister to Moe.
I’ve gone back and forth on Nanami a lot. At first I was totally in love, but then I thought that her mouth looked a little weird. I really wanted to see comparison shots with Natsuki, who happens to be a dream doll of mine, and Volks is finally delivering! I’m going to commit Dollfie blasphemy here and say that at this point, I actually like Nanami more. Her eye shape reminds me very strongly of Saber Lily, and what’s not to love about that?

Dollfie Dream Lucy was released only about a year ago, but it was recently announced that she was getting a second release–the Magical Princess version! While this might seem like an odd choice compared to other more popular dolls they could re-release (Yuki, Rina, Sasara, Tamaki…) I do adore my Lucy so I am happy to see a new getup for her.
The faceup is pretty much the same as the first one, though it looks like there might be a little more blush. She is, however, on a semi-white body like KOS-MOS, which is a small change but it does count. But the outfit is to die for! It’s just so freaking adorable, I love the parasol and the intricate dress. I’d love to get it for my own Lucy!
